Brian Castano Will Keep a Close Eye on Lara-Hurd, Wants Winner

By Elisinio Castillo

This past Saturday night in France, Brian Castano (15-0, 11 KOs) of Argentina continued to impress with a final round knockout of veteran Cedric Vitu to retain the WBA 'regular' junior middleweight title before a hostile crowd.

Castano has become the latest boxing sensation to come out of Argentina, which saw their talent level drop over the last few years with the retirements of Sergio Martinez and Marcos Maidana.

Castano is in line to fight the winner of next month's unification between IBO/WBA 'super' champion Erislandy Lara and IBF champion Jarrett Hurd.


Castano will be watching that fight with a lot of interest, as he believes that he's getting to the point where he's going to face the top boxers in the weight class.

"I want to make noise in my division. Physically and mentally I feel ready to unify with any of the super welterweight champions. I trust a lot in myself, I am one of those fighters who performs better when the challenge is more complicated," Castano told Andres Vazquez.

"My goal is to keep growing in sports and economically. I'd like to fight with the winner of Erislandy Lara vs. Harrett Hurd, who in April will unify the titles of the WBA and the IBF."

Castano, like several other top fighters from his country, has prepared himself in the United States for his scheduled bouts. He likes training where there are less distractions, and he also gets much better sparring within his weight range.

"In the United States there are no distractions: it is training from one Monday to the next Monday for two or three months without stopping. Physically I improved a lot and that allowed me to better exploit my technical potential. Now I can hold steady for twelve rounds when it comes to throwing punches, because the level of sparring is much more demanding," Castano said.

BCC vs Hurd would be an amazingly fun fight with FOTY potential regardless if Hurd wins or loses to Lara.

[QUOTE=OctoberRed;18565864]He's beating solid contenders. I would pick both Vitu and Soro to beat Lara's last opponent.[/QUOTE] Vitu is garbage, Soro is a b class.
